Visit Bidston Lighthouse's transformation by Hendrick's Gin
Hendrick’s Gin reimagines beacons of the British coastline – landmark lighthouses – as it celebrates the launch of its magically sea-inspired, limited-release Hendrick’s Neptunia Gin.
Three iconic UK lighthouses have been transformed with curiously delightful artistic projections, shining a light on East Sussex, The Wirral, and the home of Hendrick’s Gin, Girvan on the Scottish Ayrshire coast.
The newly launched Hendrick’s Neptunia Gin enchantingly bottles the magic of the sea. Captivated while on her dog walks by the magical melody of the waves lapping the Scottish coastline, Ms. Gracie wanted to bottle this freeing feeling. To celebrate capturing the essence of the rugged Ayrshire shores of Scotland, the unusualists at the Hendrick’s Gin brand have adorned three iconic saviours of the coastline – landmark lighthouses – with stunning, artistic projected transformations.
The Hendrick’s Neptunia Lighthouses at Belle Tout in East Sussex, Bidston Lighthouse on The Wirral, and Girvan – home of the majestic Hendrick’s Gin Palace – in Scotland, have been transformed by the wonderfully creative mind of contemporary British artist, Claire Luxton, who has been inspired by the peculiar history and landscape of each lighthouse and its local area, as well as the natural world around us.
Bidston Lighthouse on The Wirral, ‘The Shore’: Forever known as the lighthouse built further away from the sea than any other in the world, Bidston Lighthouse is a unique, intriguing beacon that dates to 1771. From its local heritage, the Wirral has seen inspiring discoveries from shipwrecks to treasure, and Bidston Lighthouse has long stood the test of time as a local saviour, becoming ‘The Shore’. Be sure to capture the joys of the ocean tributes from seagrasses to shells and not forgetting the beautiful portrait of Neptunia herself.
All the Hendrick’s Neptunia Lighthouse installations will be live throughout the month of April, and the curious can seek out the outlandish experience from 7pm onwards. FREE
